I love football (soccer). I enjoyed the Women's World Cup. I want to support Palestinian football, especially girl's football.

Amazing idea, and a great way to encourage girls and leading women of the future to work together to get stronger. Hope it happens!

football can bring the world together and unite people even when they are competing, all in the name of sport. Healthy competition never hurt anyone. Nice to see girls given the opportunity to play worldwide after the FA banning them during WW2. It seems the world is watching! Good luck! Let’s have a good match with fair rules and a decent unbiased ref to watch over, may the best team win.

I really hope you reach your goal. My daughter went to Palestine with a women's football team. Palestinian girls should be able to come and play football here.

Sport is great to bring people together - I hope this project will help kick anti-Palestinian/anti-Arab prejudice into the long grass! And a well deserved break for some of the youth of Abu Dis from all the horrific violence they face on a weekly basis
